AST St. Patrick’s Eve — Burlap & Bean — Sat March 16 8pm

In our other seasonal mode, we play Celtic tunes and Irish songs and an occasional outlier, selections to celebrate St. Patrick, and welcome the coming of spring.  We vary the blend with our multitude of instruments, including psaltry, accordion, handpan, whistle, flute, hammered dulcimer, banjo, guitar, mandolin, octave mandolin, tenor guitar, and celtic harp. $12 in advance, $15 at the door but this one may sell out in advance.

Planned Songs and Instrumentals  TBA

At any time, the sequence of tunes may be altered due to the whim of Doc Terry or an instrument malfunction.

A MASH-UP is AST’s way of incorporating the Celtic tradition of merging many tunes into one. Originally. it was probably to make a tune that was long enough to give the dancers a workout, but we don’t expect dancers and change rhythm at will, which would piss dancers off.

There will be purposeful Sing-Along’s, (a song sheet is provided) but if you know the words at other times, please feel free to jump in. Just be careful because we don’t do anything straight. This pertains particularly to the MASH-UPS.
